Sandra Bullock Is Top Earning Hollywood Actress of 2014


Sandra Bullock


The 'Gravity' star earned an estimated $51 million in a year, beating out Jennifer Lawrence who reportedly bagged $34 million.

Sandra Bullock is the highest-paid actress in Hollywood, according to Forbes. The "Speed" star tops the annual list released by the business magazine on Monday, August 4 with estimated earnings of $51 million over 12 months, thanks mostly to "Gravity" which became a box office hit in 2013 and earned her second Best Actress nomination at Academy Awards.

"Movies based on original ideas, as opposed to comic books or young adult novels, are rare these days in Hollywood...but director Alfonso Cuaron and Warner Bros. had a huge hit with 'Gravity'," Forbes notes. "Much of that success can be chalked up to Sandra Bullock's gripping performance as Ryan Stone. Not only did the film win seven Oscars but it also helped Bullock become this year's highest-paid actress."

Trailing behind the "Miss Congeniality" actress is young star Jennifer Lawrence, who places second for the second consecutive year with an estimated income of $34 million between June 2013 and June 2014. The 23-year-old beauty, who earned an Oscar in 2013, stars in two big movie franchises, "The Hunger Games" and "X-Men".

Taking the third place is Jennifer Aniston with an estimated $31 million, up one spot from last year. Gwyneth Paltrow comes in fourth with an estimated $19 million, while last year's first placer Angelina Jolie rounds out the top 5 with an estimated $18 million.
